June 2019, Portugal. The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James (Santiago in Spanish) in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. Yearly, thousands of people of various backgrounds walk the Camino de Santiago either on their own or in organized groups. The Portuguese Way is the second most popular Camino in terms of numbers of pilgrims.
